Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Michigan (from a talk at the conference of the National Association of Black Journalists): Sept. 11 only heightened the misconceptions about Islam. Islam-phobia has risen in the post-Sept. 11 era among certain populations in the United States.

If there was a different administration [with] a different language about the Muslim community and had a different foreign policy and a domestic agenda, and a different agenda on the so-called war on terror, I think Islam-phobia would decrease.
